Hey everybody, let's talk about the Galaxy Note 20.
There have been plenty of reports out there, and we're going to sum them up all for you.
First up the name, it's probably going to be called the Galaxy Note 20 to keep them in line with the Galaxy S Way back in 2017, Samsung, skip the Note 6.
So the Note in the Galaxy S could share the seven name and we all remember the Galaxy Note 7 right?
It was an awesome phone.
It had a great.
Well, except for that battery setup that had a tendency to catch fire at all.
Anyway, Samsung jumped from the Galaxy S 10 to the Galaxy S 20.
The note should be bumped to 20 for the sake of consistency.
Okay, so beyond the name What about hardware?
The very reliable ice universe tweeted
Galaxy Note 20s hardware specifications will not be significantly changed compared to the S20 series, including cameras, and good old Max weinbach from XDA Developers tweeted, basically everything is the same, just think S series with an S Pen and squared off corners.
Let's break that down a little bit then, The S and the Note usually use the latest processors so we can expect the Note 20 to pack in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.
That's not really a surprise.
Then we've got the cameras from the Galaxy S20.
Samsung made a big deal of the new cameras on the Galaxy S20.
Samsung calls it A pro grade multi camera the Ultra has a 12 megapixel ultra wide camera, 108 megapixel wide angle camera, and a 48 megapixel telephoto camera.
And of course, Samsung has what it calls.
It's 100x Space Zoom.
So there was a problem with Samsung's amazing camera.
Apparently, the cameras on the S20 Ultra that's the expensive one.
Had trouble with autofocus.
These problems did not affect the s20 and s20.
Plus though, Samsung is now rolling out a software update, that should fix the autofocus issues.
If you've got the s20.
Head to settings and then get that software update.
So the no 20 is sharing the s20s camera components Then maybe the no 20s autofocus will work right out of the box.
That's a plus.
Let's talk about storage.
San mobile reports.
The Galaxy Note 20 is in development with 128 gigabytes of storage with hundred 28 gigabytes.
That same report postulates that the no 20 Could come with a micro SD card slot.
If this was the case, considering 128 gigabytes might be on the small side.
The Note 10 had 256 of gigabytes of storage.
But no room for expansion, the 10 plus comes in 256 and 512 gigabyte models.
The plus models also have a micro SD card slot, there is a chance that the no 20 might be using faster storage than before.
Samsung published a press release saying it has begun mass production of the fastest storage for flagship phones.
Samsung says this new memory tech Deliver three times the right speed of the previous tech.
What does that mean?
Samsung says that phones with this new EU FS 3.1 tech will take only about 1.5 minutes to move 100 gigabytes of data.
Let me say that again.
100 gigabytes moved in around 90 seconds.
The older tech took more than four minutes.
Samsung says this faster memory would be very useful when you're storing lots of huge photos and 8K videos.
Maybe this new eUFS 3.1 will end up in the Note 20 to give it some kind of different technology than the S20.
There are still a lot of questions about the Note 20 Let's talk about screen sizes.
The S20 lineup features models with huge screens.
The S20 has a 6.2 inch display the plus a 6.7 inch and the ultra has a massive 6.9 inch screen.
Note phones are usually larger than the Galaxy S. How large can a note get?
While we're making a phone, can it get to seven inches?
It seems kind of nuts that think of a phone that big if the note 20 and S 20 are going to be very similar except the S Pen.
Do they both continue to exist way back in September of 2019.
Evan Blass tweeted that Samsung is said to be debating future Galaxy branding including eliminating the distinction between the S and Note lines.
He also tweeted since the S and Note features overlapped so closely, One possibility is to simply fuse them into a single first half handset, essentially, an S series with an S pen with the galaxy z flip and the galaxy fold.
Maybe the note does not have a long life ahead before finally converging with the S. Maybe we're getting the Galaxy S 20 note in August I still maintain that the Galaxy Fold should get S Pen support.
That is, once the screen is tough enough to write on.
If you've got any questions, comments or news, let me know on Twitter.
Also I have an interview up with the head of Google Assistant there.
